The other night I was watching the Coyotes play the Flames on TV and I found myself cheering for the Yotes.
Part of the reason I think is because I am of the strong belief that the Flames are pure evil. I guess old habits die hard.
The other and more important reason was a part of me is starting to take a much more serious interest in our returning/soon to be announced NHL hockey team. It got to the point where I was actually cheering for the Yotes as if they were already wearing the Winnipeg Jets jerseys.
My question is how is everyone handling this situation. Are we cheering for the Yotes/Jets yet, or are we hoping they finish their last season in Glendale out of the playoffs?
The overwhelming majority of those suggested that a new Winnipeg team should be the Jets...
Which suggests that part of this exercise for Winnipeggers is about getting back what rightly belongs to them. And that re-claiming the name Jets would be a little like re-inserting the missing piece to a city that has had a hole in it since 1996.

well either way they are leaving imo so it doesnt really matter.. ive never hated or not cheered for the yotes.. or really payed attention to them half the time for that fact.. but fact is .. they are a good team that we are likely to have next year and hopefully they do well because they will be representing us next year .
I am not cheering for them. Not until they return. If they tank and lose all remaining games, the interest/fan support will be even more pathetic and the team will have that much better a chance of moving.
Like BCMike said, if they do TOO well, it could somehow entice a new owner to come save the day.
